Hi neighbours. Our beautiful red pōhutukawa trees (or New Zealand's Christmas trees) are just about in full bloom.
However, not all pōhutukawa trees are red. Have you seen any yellow or white pōhutukawa trees in your local area? We'd love to see your photos. Feel free to leave a photo in the comments or email me the tree's location at firstname.lastname@example.org

A romantic dinner for two created by Nicolini private chef makes an unusual special gift idea.
Valentines dinner, anniversaries, special occasions or just to say I love you. You can spoil your loved one with a nice Romantic Dinner for 2, have a Couple’s Date Night for 4, or a larger dinner party with as many as your dining room can hold.
Chef Nicolini creates a unique, one-of-a-kind menu just for you, based on your preferences. The Intimate Dinner Parties start with Antipasto board, then dinner begins with a hot Main Course, and finishes with Dessert.
